“Almost everything–all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure–these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” – Steve Jobs
Back to basics with one of my more popular topics – targeted job search. Specifically, job search leads for specific industries. And the most popular of my popular posts is of course jobs in technology. So at first glance you might wonder why anyone would have to tell a technologist how or where to look for jobs on the Internet. But, you may be good at technology but that does not necessarily mean you know where to look for a job. And, like everything else in life, technology jobs come in all sizes and shapes. There are jobs at actual technology companies or tech jobs at non-tech companies. Today’s post focuses on the “not in the top ten tech companies” because sometimes size or popularity does not matter.
Some of the Companies you Know and Love:
- Google -“Let’s work together” is the tag line for Google’s careers page. And, they have a pretty neat careers site (as you would expect). There are all of the stories about the difficult job interview process, but people do get hired. Top left hand side of the page has links to Joining Google and Life at Google (along with office locations). Center page is the job search function (key word, locations and categories). Browse by locations or visit their social media channels.
